How to make a straight side on my piston ?

By Sacha Dieryck on 06 May 20:01 1 answer 0 comments

Hi, I'm trying to make this piston in solidworks :
There are a lot of nice tutorials abound round piston but as you can see on the 4th picture, the bottom of my piston isn't totally round. Do I need to make a fully round piston and then cut it or is there another way ?

    I would make this using the loft feature with guided curves.
    make a few planes and at every plane sketch the required section.
